Olympia WA – Want to help shape public transportation in Thurston County? Intercity Transit’s Community Advisory Committee (CAC) needs you!

The Intercity Transit Authority (Authority) seeks volunteer members for the CAC. The 20-member advisory group provides input to the Authority on public transportation issues such as service changes, strategic plans, the budget, fare structures, and other topics.

The Authority selects CAC members to represent a cross-section of the community. Most members serve three-year terms, while youth position(s) serve a one-year term. As a student member, you’ll receive a free bus pass and can get credit for volunteer hours.

The CAC meets the third Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Intercity Transit’s business office, 526 Pattison St. SE in Olympia. Routes 62A, 62B, and 66 serve this location.
